The Team at APPRO Development would like to share some commercial property roof maintenance information with you and your team. Commercial and industrial property owners, beware! At this time of the year, it is important to check on the status of your roof. We have had a lot of freeze/thaw activity in the past few weeks, and it may have taken its toll on your roof.
Industrial workforce staffing and team solutions were a couple of topics covered at a recent seminar I had the privilege of attending. This event, hosted by MRCI WorkSource at the Rosemount/Senior Living at Steeples Center in Rosemount, Minnesota, is one of eleven planned "Lunch 'n Learn" seminars with the goal of sharing some of their successes in workforce solutions, while introducing their organization to area businesses. A win-win...you've gotta love it!
Lean principles in business have had a significant impact for our team. APPRO and CERRON have long respected our manufacturing clients and their processes that lead to quality and efficiency. For this reason, we adopted a Lean Model tailored for us as a service organization.

Dedication of Memorial to Maynard B. Johnson
On October 16th, we had the privilege of attending a dedication for a memorial to Maynard Johnson, who had passed away July 16, 2017, at the age of 95. Maynard was one of the original founders of the Airlake Industrial Park, a mentor, and a good friend. It was an honor to be able to attend (and for our owner Jack Matasosky to be able to say a few words at) the dedication ceremony.
The location of the memorial is at Pioneer Plaza, Holyoke Avenue and 208th Street, Lakeville, MN 55044
